records retention roadmap

filerskeepers believes that companies should be able to know all retention periods that apply to them. That is why we were very happy when the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) wrote a wonderful article about our ambitions. You can read it here.

Our end goal is that we want to to solve the problem of data retention once and for all. That is why we have developed this roadmap:

  • Phase 1: content

  • Phase 2: always receive realtime updates

  • Phase 3: calculate your own golden standard

  • Phase 4: know your residual risk

  • Phase 5: embed filerskeepers into your systems

Want to join our roadmap?

Phase 1: content

In Phase 1 we focus on what matters most, content. Or in plain language: we are going to publish as many data retention schedules as possible. We have data retention periods available on the countries below. We will be publishing them one by one the coming months.
